Credit Transfer is available to all Learners enrolling in any of our training programs on our scope of registration.
Credit Transfer – means credit towards a qualification granted to Learners on the basis of outcomes gained by a Learner through participation in courses or nationally training package qualifications with another Registered Training Provider.
Credit transfer Credit transfer applies when credit can be given for formal learning equivalent to the competency outcomes. This may include credit transfer based on formal learning that is outside the AQF.
ASTC recognises the AQF qualifications and Statements of Attainment issued by any other RTOs.
Credit Transfer will only be granted for an entire unit of competency, not for individual elements of competency.
The procedure to make a Credit transfer application is as follows:
If a learner’s previous study was a program at ASTC, the learner does not need to submit any supporting documentation.
If a learner’s previous study was undertaken with another institution the learner must submit documentation to support their application. This documentation may include:
ASTC will assess all applications for credit transfer for relevance towards the ASTC program and the currency of the learning outcomes:
To receive credit for a previously completed course that course must be equivalent in content, learning outcomes and assessment requirements to the course a learner wishes to receive credit for.
ASTC will assess a learner’s previous study for its currency to determine if the body of knowledge and practice has changed significantly. If the course content has changed significantly and the learner has not maintained sustained practice in the field of study the application may be rejected.
A learner may appeal within 30 days of notification. Please refer to Assessment Appeals.
A Credit Transfer Application template is available to support this process.
No fees are applied to Credit Transfer.
